What does "oao" mean? Or was it a typo?

I know there is a lot of things going on here. BUTTTT would anyone want some nice hot crepes, they taste lemony and have strawberry freezer jam to go over them. I made some Italian roast coffee for anyone who wants some. Now I'm going to make sammies and a salad for lunch any suggestions.

you must have read my mind, kades! i would love a taste of your lemony crepes. this will have to my last coffee though. i'm getting real "buzzy" from all that caffeine. is that italian roast decaf of yours a good tasting coffee, kades? do you sometimes drink caffeinated coffee or sodas, kades, or do you stay with the decaf exclusively?

it's funny that you should ask for sandwich suggestions, kades. i've had this particular sandwich in mind, like a broken record, for weeks off and on-- don't know why either. i bet you have the perfect recipe for this, too. how do you make your beef french dip sandwiches, kades? rachael ray has a quickie version of a french dip, that i might have to try. a great big fat roast beef sandwich, with a bowl of au jus on the side to dip it in--omg, i can almost taste the juices! i'm gonna go for one more of your crepes, kades. i like to make a long thin roll-up out of them, with the jam squirting out from the sides, yum....

i think kades is a 'oao' too! (one-and-only) :)

My coffee wont get ya fuzzy it's de-caf plus I don't make it real dark. Glad you're enjoying the crepes. They are soo nummy Now when I make french dip I use either left over prime rib the bits and pieces. or I roast a small eye of the round. I then make a quick au jus from sauteed onions and garlic then toss in Knorr au jus salt and pepper and something to
help thicken the gravey just a tad. I like it with a little body the other not so much. then we eat after the sammies are put together. Oh if I use a eye of round I use the slicer and put the meat in the au jus so the au jus is a lot more than if using prime rib.

Sorry I had to run off this morning, V. It's my day to visit the fishmonger -- I got so excited I even forgot to turn off the computer.

Can't take credit for the molasses cookies, but the coffee & 'lasses cookies sounds like a marriage made in heaven. I think they put the molasses next to the maple syrup at the grocer's.

I'm almost glad I can't stay now -- things to do, ya know -- the hammering and dust! Oi. Princess will have to dust the books all over again. Oh well, that's construction for you. But worth the trouble.

Well it's not Darrell or his brother Darrell, it's his other brother Darrell that's best at carpentry. Darrell the eldest knows about welding and metalworking, Darrell in the middle is good with masonry and drywall, and it's Darrell the youngest that does the woodworking.

Which brings to my second point. You might remember I mentioned that they sometimes get carried away. You also might have noticed none of the brothers D know anything about architecture. Uncle Joe called this afternoon after he woke up from his afternoon nap (fell asleep in his rocker again). It seems that the brothers built two stories instead of just the one...LIKE THE PLANS said.

We have plenty of materials so that's not a problem. I need your help figuring out what to do with the extra room. More books? A movie room? Billiards? Study/upstairs or down?

holy crap! those darrell boys, i knew it, right away KNEW it in my gut--trouble times three! they come across like these goofy, harmless, maniacs--you know, like time bombs dressed in faded overalls...holy crap, what do we do now?

thing is, the 'accidents' that keep happening here--they all turn out to be more like lucky breaks...happy mistakes. well, i'm staying out of this one. we have ourselves an extra free, sound-proofed room. hey, so long as they don't contaminate the space with their x boxes and electronic games and toys....

Holy crap it looks AWESOME around here! Sorry I've been absent. Things were stupid busy at work! We had 5 admissions and one overdue intake that all got done in the last two days...mostly by me. Wow. I am so tired I can't remember if I'm coming or going.

I need a decaf latte, something sweet and a hug. Anyone still here? Sorry I left the library in such a mess. Thanks for tidying up behind me y'all. I'm around for 4 days now.

Thanks PF. I needed that. Now I just have to summon the energy to haul my sorry bum to bed. This blackcurrant tea was just the ticket though.
